Mingle with models in their ’60s-style suits and snap some pics in front of a Mural backdrop. Head to Gallery L8 in the Bloch Building afterwards to catch the real Mural paired with Robert Motherwell’s Elegy to the Spanish Republic, No. 126 and get a closer look at the layers of paint used to create such stunning, monumental paintings.
Drop-in Art Activity: Motherwell-inspired Collage
We may not be able to create monumental works like Robert Motherwell, but can at least take inspiration from his Elegies series. Create your own torn and cut paper collages to take home as a mini masterpiece.
